THE world's largest monkey breeding factory is in Vietnam.

It exists to supply the escalating demand for live animal experiments in the UK research industry and elsewhere.

The Government is turning a blind eye to an appallingly cruel and inhuman trade by giving supplier approved status to companies which import these monkeys for vivisection.

Many people in the UK will be appalled that the British Government is sanctioning a lifetime of suffering for these sensitive creatures. It's why I write to let people know the truth about this shadowy trade.
